so well. they tend to lose seats historically, but i think -- >> clinton didn't. >> i think there are exceptions. what barack obama is counting on is a combination of sort of wearing down the republican party. there is a sense of demoralization on the right, and if you can tamp down that turnout because essentially you're throwing so many issues at the republican base -- >> yeah. >> they almost can't resist it, and at the same time you're hiking up the excitement and keeping the level of excitement among minority voters high. i think the stuff they're doing on immigration is in part designed to do both of those things at once. >> unpack that bag. what does his throwing out that thing, whoever threw it out, his plan on immigration reform, how does that bring out, spook out, whatever you want to call it, the republican right so they make exactly the presentation he wants them to make so the hispanics, for example, will say i'm not joining that party? >> they did it to themselves. look at the reflexive reaction of a marco rubio, of leaders in that party. the reflexive reaction

differently that he didn't do, which was by having them do nothing about the military. clinton and obama and the younger bush. these four individuals made these contributions, it is no surprise that they were in the terrible situation that we find ourselves in now that has to be corrected. when we look at the george herbert walker bush administration, he had three important people at the defense department. it was based on just a tailored pattern of total deception and outright lies. they have put together a secret paper. instead of taking together a strategic opportunity the collapse of the soviet union in 1991, all of those things we didn't expect to see in a lifetime. i certainly didn't expect to see this a couple of us wrote about the problems and no one expected it to collapse like a house of cards. this opportunity you was totally not taken. it was not taken by the bush administration. there were things like the invasion of panama and one individual had been on the cia payroll for most of the time and that is a heck of a precedence to set the terms of the military. it speaks as a m

, george h.w. bush, and little billy clinton. >> i don't think mark liked the speech. >> let's try to be slightly dispassionate about it. [laughter] you have a whole host of problems in society. the liberal answer is to find it a government program that will fix id. state of the union address. the conservative approach is in what way is the government passed a regulation and taxation and corruptions and hindrances of all kinds holding back to this incredible engine of the private sector, which historically has provided unpresident -- unprecedented prosperity and liberty in america? that is the difference between the parties. rubio, if you look at the transcript -- i will not speak about the delivery. it was hot in there and he was obviously thursday. [laughter] the transcript was an excellent explanation of the conservative argument that what is coming america is a sclerotic, obsolete hanging onto every regulation, every increase in taxation, i thought he did it well. the problem is, he should have done it in a studio somewhere well-prepared. >> colby? >> it was a "saturday night l

ones people raise. what they miss, is what would bill clinton have been without a second term. it wasn't the lewinsky issue that matters in the end but when he left office we had a surplus and that the triangulation worked and was able to have a balanced budget and couldn't have done it without a second term. we don't dwell on ronald reagan's iran-contra debacle. the fact of the matter is reagan's great diplomacy with mikhail gorbachev, margaret thatcher said reagan won the cold war without firing a single shot and occurred because reagan is taking the trips and meeting with gorbachev to end the cold war. but the point i'm making is this notion of the division of first and second terms and all the polls we see is a little bit overwrought. if second terms were so bad, f.d.r. woopt have had a third or fourth there is truth you lose some of your in the sense barack obama won't run again and people realize his power is limited, his clock is running so it's sometimes harder to do legislative deals in the second term, on the other hand, barack obama can sign executive order after ex

a different way against the six-year itch? >> i'm not surprised at all. don't forget, i worked in the clinton white house in 1998, when for the first time in roughly 70 years, the party that held the white house actually picked up seats in a second-term, mid-term election. and the reason was, if you think back to '98, it was because president clinton was under siege by house republicans looking to impeach him. and the american public basically said, you know what, that's just gone a little too far. and they went and rallied behind the president and his party. i see a parallel this time around. we still see republicans beating up on the president, no matter what he does. and i think there's going to be a backlash against that again. just like we saw in 1998. and i think there is reason to believe that the midterm elections for the house this time will be like 1998 for the democrats, where we will see democrats even in an incumbent president's second term, mid-term election, picking up seats. and that has everything to do with president obama's legacy and treatment. of course he's going to want

of the senate, well, ted cruise is jim demint 2.30 or 3 had the 0. we saw in the hearing with secretary clinton, we saw in the confirmation hearings with chuck hagel that cruise was by far the most prosecutorial, the most aggressive of the questioners of both of those folks, and he is someone who makes no bones about his -- both his ambition and his willingness to buck how the senate is supposed to work. we're going to hear more from him before we hear less. >> you know, the way the senate is supposed to work is that you don't ask a question about the friends of hamas until you check out whether there is even such an organization as the friends of hamas. just saying. margaret, could marco rubio and the foreign trip. he has credentials and has given foreign policy speeches. here he was with king abdullah. he was in israel and had a press conference there, met with netanyahu. he is really -- there he is with shimon peres. there is quite a lot of activity by marco rubio, even since the state of the union water episode. >> well, he has now checked his foreign policy box. you'll remember these are n

are hillary clinton testifying on benghazi. >> we were misled that there were supposedly proeft protests and something sprang out of that. that was not the fact and the american people could have known that within days and they didn't know that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we have four dead americans. was it because of a protest or guys out for a walk one night that decided they would kill americans. what difference, at this point does it make. >> our second category john mccain versus one of his constituents. >> we have had enough time. >> we have had enough time. you know something, again, i have had town hall meetings for 30 years. people are happy i have town hall meetings and i listen to them and get back to them. that's what this is about but occasionally a get a jerk like you. >> a third nominee in this category best political smack down, tag romney defending his dad after a presidential debate. >> what is it like for you to hear the president of the united states calling your dad a liar? >> you jump out of your seat and want to rush to the debate stage and take a swing a

on that course. >> good things happen when presidents are golfing with famous people. back in 1997 bill clinton got a phone call while he was golfing with michael jordan in vegas. he got the horrible news that -- true stroory. i get to say this because i'm a former politician. he got the news that if he did nothing, the budget was going to balance itself alone without any of his help. so he quit, rushed to the airport and came back saying, we have to do something fast so i can take credit for it. and we did. so there you go. i think it's a fascinating story. i did that for the kids. >> meanwhile, in the middle of all this, senator lindsay graham is suggesting one potential -- >> wait, wait, wait. can i just ask a question? >> because he needs cameras and likes to be on tv and has a lot to say. >> let's be honest, guys. john, you're not looking at me. you're reading. >> what is wrong with you? >> i'm reading about immigration. >> we're talking about lindsay. we poke at lindsay a lot. it's not personal. should we have an intervention? should we give him a call, or should we call somebody in the s

when bill clinton got elected versus when ronald reagan got elected, the electorate has been changing for a very long time but the right didn't notice because they have been able to use these tricks to gin up their base and maximize their vote and they have always used the far right to do it. they get them excited over cultural issues -- >> what went wrong this time? for every african-american vote or latino vote you were going to lose a more conservative white person from say the southwest, but that doesn't exactly happen. the white vote sort of been up a bit for obama and then the african-american and the other minority votes zoomed. >> and part of the problem is number one they have lost the cities. they're losing including the urban white vote, losing more educated white voters among with minority vote% and losing young voters. part of the problem is them. the messaging they use to gin up their base turns off obviously younger people, it turns off women, turns off minorities and this time they really got minute norths excited about voting. there was already loyalty to barack obama

. because remember, in '95 or '96 with -- under the gingrich/dick armey congress bill clinton was able to force them to raise the minimum wage and there were those referenda you talked about. one of the key points that ought to be made and one of the reasons why older studies -- we no longer -- the minimum wage does not apply very much in manufacturing. when you are dealing with manufacturing, which is done across national lines, there could be some negative economic effect in terms of transferring out. we know people are ready to move jobs out. but overwhelmingly today, minimum wage jobs are in the service industries. if the restaurant down the street is charging a little more because of wages, you can't go to malaysia for a sandwich. and so it's food service. the supermarkets and restaurants. if you look at where the minimum wage has an effect, it is in those areas in america that are really not subject to foreign competition. because they're not making things. they are performing a service for which people need to be physically present. this is part of the test of whether or not the
